I am a student in Birmingham and this accommodation is by far the best that exists in the city centre and around Aston Uni Campus. I happily renew my contract every year!



Very friendly staff , great people, kind, organised and willing to help anytime.



Highly recommended. Also way less noise and mess comparing to the other accommodations around which makes it a good environment for students who want to concentrate in their studies and succeed!



Also plenty of student space offered- library, student space with games etc.

I've lived here for the past 2 years and it's a really nice place to live.

All rooms are nice and clean because they've only been open for two years so everything is still new.

Staff are always really friendly and helpful and are always on hand to help with any problems.

It's right next door to Aston Uni so it literally takes two minutes to get to lectures.

My only problem is the price; it's more expensive than most other sites in the area, but it's because most rooms are studios rather than shared flats.

Overall a really nice place to live, well worth the higher price tag.

Can't speak for all, but I've had absolutely no issues with this place. Maintenance problems have been sorted within a day or so of being reported. There is staff on site 24/7 for any issues or emergencies. The building is really nice with a fair amount of quite unique architecture. There are two main social/study spaces that are cleaned regularly, with a big TV and sofas too.



The only slight issue is that sometimes it can get a little cold, but a £20 heater from B&M has sorted that out.

Friendly and helpful staff, with a responsive maintenance team. The rooms are in really good condition, nice modern feel to them. The historic setting is quite a nice change to other local accommodations. Location is right next to Aston University, so five minutes away from the city centre and very close to Birmingham City University as well, ideal for students at those universities. I say it's great for second and third year students as the accommodation is well-managed (so fairly quiet), and the location is perfect for those needing to get university quickly/regularly, so a great place to focus on your studies. The cost is slightly higher than other student accommodations but you get your money's worth for the location in my opinion. It's safe, offers opportunities to meet other residents and partake in social events, and the rooms are generally spacious and clean. The shower is always hot as well, from my experience. My only negatives are that it can get quite cold in the winter due to the timed heating radiators they use (but most places use these), but quickly can be warmed up. Also, it's not the most lively accommodation but that doesn't mean that it can't be. Staff here are great, always there if you need.

Noisy from extractor fans going 24/7 in the courtyard. Get an outside facing room if you can.

Second entrance is never shut so anyone can come in. Rooms in bandstand area don't have opening windows. Management friendly but aren't able to do much about any problems. Post/parcels regularly lost due to no real system. Only one Hoover for 400+ residents.
